It was on board this balloon that the first crossing of the Pas-de-Calais was made in 1785, by Blanchard and Jeffries. Starting from the foot of the old castle of Dover, at one hour and five, they had to stop several descents by throwing overboard to their clothes. They crossed the coast at three o'clock. Blanchard threw out a packet of letters (the first air mail) and the landing took place a few hours from Calais.

Wanting to evoke through Tintin, the history of the means of transport, peoples, countries..., Hergé develops the Chromos project with the help of E.P. Jacobs.
The first images appeared in 1946 in the Tintin newspaper and the chromos can be obtained in exchange for Tintin stamps.
The project was initially broader and became the history of the means of transport.
The 300 existing chromos are signed Hergé and appear in 2 stages.
Firstly in collaboration with E.P.Jacobs appear the series AÉROSTATION and THE FER CHEMINS
Then in collaboration with J.Martin, the series L'AUTOMOBILE DES ORIGINES in 1900 was published. THE AVIATION WAR 1939-45,THE AVIATION ORIGINS TO 1914. THE NAVY OF ORIGINS TO 1700. THE NAVY FROM 1700 TO 1800
